Foot-to-ball Head-thinks: FIFA Manager 2009


It’s that time of year. The updates for the Football Management games are coming in. The just-shy-of-a-gig demo of EA’s FIFA Manager 2009 is now available to download. It’s only first divisions of six countries with a few stadium and no realistic 3D-noggins or commentary and similar, and ends after 90 days, but that’s still a lot of “Oooh – I think we need to go 4-3-3″isms for nowt. And, just to mix things up a little, here’s the German trailer for the game…

Fußball: Ist est gut!

(Or something like that anyway)

Anyone played previous FIFA Managers. Thoughts?

    Why doesn’t this contain the 3dgogglisms? Isn’t that what’s “new” about the new version? You’d thought they’d want to show that off, wouldn’t you?

    FIFA manager has introduced the ‘exciting’ third dimension too?

    Not that I could have told you it didn’t have it before as I am strictly a Football Manager sort of chap.

    The last football manager game I played was Champ Man. 98 where I led Leyton Orient to unlikely dominance over the Premiership. Since then, it’s never quite been the same.

    @Pod:

    That’s Football Manager 2009 (FM09) you’re thinking of. Not FIFA Manager 2009 (FM09).

    Keep up.

    In hindsight that post looks less like wit, and more like I’m being a dick.

    Sigh. Such a fine line.

  7. Pod says:

    Harris old chap. If you hadn’t have pointed it out, I would never have noticed…

    I’ve never even heard of “FIFA manager”!

    I really enjoyed FIFA Manager this year (see review here). In fact, I liked it more than Footy Manager 2009 because it’s way more simple and light hearted. FM is just too bloody complicated these days.

    If you’re a bit sick of FM, it’s a great alternative.

    A good authentic NBA jersey isn’t cheap, but there are ways to get wholesale nfl jerseys with good quality. Sometimes there is no need to spend a large fortune for a NBA jersey, when you could get a marvelous cheap NBA jersey with the similar characters. They are also comfortable, with good ventilation, offering you a fashion look.
